Introducing the new Edge 130 Plus and Edge 1030 Plus from Garmin

Garmin has announced the Edge 130 Plus and Edge 1030 Plus, its latest GPS bike computers that include state of the art navigation, performance insights and safety and tracking features. Engineered for cyclists, by cyclists, the Edge 130 Plus and Edge 1030 Plus will not only track a ride, but monitor stats, provide training guidance and more. Ideal for riding no matter the weather conditions, the Edge 130 Plus features a button design and a 1.8-inch display that’s sharp and easy to read, whereas the Edge 1030 Plus offers a 3.5-inch touchscreen display that is quick and responsive – even when wet or used with gloves.

Designed for year-round riding, the Edge 130 Plus and Edge 1030 Plus allow cyclists to sync indoor and outdoor workouts automatically from Garmin Connect™ or other training apps, including TrainingPeaks® and TrainerRoad, right to their device. During a ride, the Edge 130 Plus and Edge 1030 Plus use vital data to provide dynamic performance insights, including VO2 max and heart rate, while the ClimbPro feature lets riders see the remaining ascent and grade for each of their climbs when following a route or course. Whether commuting to work or out riding with friends, built-in safety and tracking features include incident detection, assistance and LiveTrack to let loved ones follow a cyclists’ real-time location and view their entire preplanned course to see where they’re headed.

 

With features specific to each model, the new Edge 130 Plus and Edge 1030 Plus deliver easy-to-follow navigation as well as key metrics and insight to every rider. Each cycling computer is built with purpose in both form and function to help cyclists make every ride count.

Stay on track with the Edge 130 Plus. GPS, GLONASS and Galileo satellites, plus a built-in altimeter provide greater coverage and more accurate ride data so cyclists know how far, fast and high they ride. Before heading out, riders can plan and download their routes using the Course Creator in Garmin Connect, which uses Trendline™ popularity routing to provide riders with the best road, mountain or gravel routes that are aggregated from those most travelled by fellow cyclists. While riding, easy-to-read course prompts and a breadcrumb map let cyclists see where they’ve been and where they’re going. At the end of a ride, it will even direct users back to their starting location.

 

To help cyclists boost their performance, the Edge 130 Plus provides insights such as VO2 max, heart rate, heart rate zones and calories burned. For riders searching for their next adventure, the Edge 130 Plus will keep track of detailed mountain biking metrics, including jump count, jump distance and hang time so they can relive every heart-racing run.

 

Smart connectivity features mean cyclists won’t have to reach for their phone when using the Edge 130 Plus. Text messages will appear on the device screen so cyclists can view them at a glance and keep on riding. A weather page will display current and forecasted conditions, as well as weather alerts to help keep users from getting stuck in a downpour. When paired with a compatible smartphone, the Edge 130 Plus automatically uploads rides to the Garmin Connect online fitness community and is customizable by downloading configurable data fields from the Connect IQ™ store. The Edge 130 Plus features up to 12 hours of battery life while using GPS and up to 10 hours when using two sensors.

Get ready for any ride, from remote gravel trails to epic climbs, with the Edge 1030 Plus. Preloaded Garmin Cycle Maps have wider coverage than ever before across the United States and Europe and include turn-by-turn navigation and alerts that notify riders of sharp curves ahead. Cyclists can create new rides and courses right on their device or use Trendline popularity routing to find routes based on billions of miles of ride data that other users have uploaded. For riders using platforms like Strava and Komoot, they can create courses and seamlessly sync them to their device. While out for a ride, cyclists can now pause route guidance and off course notifications if they choose to explore off the beaten path. When they’re ready to get back on track, the Edge 1030 Plus will guide cyclists back to the route or back to where they originally started their ride. Using the preloaded Trailforks app, riders can view trail details from more than 80 countries right on the device. When stopped mid-ride, Forksight mode automatically displays upcoming forks in the trail and shows riders where they are within a trail network.

 

Cyclists using the Edge 1030 Plus can easily track their VO2 max, recovery time, training load, training focus and more to see how their body is responding to their efforts. They will even get daily workout suggestions based on their current training load and VO2 max. The Edge 1030 Plus lets riders see how their body is holding up in different environments with heat and altitude acclimation and receive in-ride notifications when it’s time to refuel or rehydrate. In addition to jump count, jump distance and hang time, other mountain bike features include Grit, which rates the difficulty of a ride using GPS, elevation and accelerometer data, and Flow, which measures how smoothly a cyclist descends a trail.

My 1030's screen is going blue again. Hopefully they upgrade me to the 1030+ this time.

This will be my 3rd 1030 warranty. :(

My 1030 is more than I need and is still working perfectly.

Hope it stays like that.  Only had one warranty replacement.

My 820 battery just doesn't hold any more.  I bought two kits together (one for my assistant) and his still works perfectly despite being used way more frequently.   

 

Took it in, and laughably they wanted like 75% of the 830 price to "replace" it.   At just 18 months  and only about 90 rides.

 

Wahoo will have my business shortly because Garmin honestly just didn't give a f*ck to listen to me.

I had my 810 replaced with an 820 for around R1500, as my battery on my 810 was not holding charge.

 

My 820's screen has developed a halo - since I am not in Canada, I contacted Garmin North America. I am getting a replacement unit free of charge. 

 

I had 2 options: send current device, and once received, they would send the replacement; or pay a deposit, they ship immediately, and I can return the existing device when I receive the replacement

 

I have also had my Fenix 5 swapped out (no cost) by Garmin SA, and had a 735xt replaced with a 935 due to the battery not holding charge, for around R1200

 

I have always felt the treatment received is luck of the draw
